Alpinist and adidas outdoor athlete Andreas Steindl ran 30 kilometres (19 miles) across the Swiss Alps on Thursday, crossing five 4000 metre (13,100 feet) peaks, including the Dom - the largest mountain residing exclusively in Switzerland. The athlete completed the first crossing in 2013, and has been waiting for the right conditions to complete the run again, ever since. Many of the crossings between mountains are only traversable when they are free of snow, a rare occurrence. Steindl crossed glaciers, climbed vertical ascents and shimmied along exposed ridges during the run. The alpinist finished in just 7 hours, 45 minutes and 44 seconds. A new record, beating the time set by the previous record holder, himself, by over an hour. As well as being a passionate mountaineer, Steindl is an accomplished skier winning the Ski Mountaineering World Championship in 2013. Footage courtesy of: Adidas.
